DALLAS, Feb. 27, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Dallas-based HALL Structured Finance II, LLC (HSF) announced today that the company has opened a Reg A debenture offering. The company is seeking to raise $50 million in investments in order to expand its lending capacity to meet the growing demand for construction financing. HSF closed approximately $300 million in construction loans in 2017, and expects to close more than $500 million in 2018.
"In today's lending climate, it is very difficult for borrowers to obtain construction financing through traditional banks. In light of this, HSF has stepped in to fill this void and make it possible for high quality developments across the U.S. to move forward," said Craig Hall, Founder and Chairman of HALL Group, HSF's parent company. "Our hope is that through this public offering, we are able to expand HSF's footprint into more diverse asset types, such as office and multifamily, and continue to make more loans each year to strong projects that would otherwise not be possible."
HSF is offering a debenture with a maturity date of December 31, 2022, bearing an interest rate of 8% paid quarterly. Investments can be made directly or through an IRA account, and the offering is backed by the full faith and credit of HSF, which has been actively lending to the real estate industry since 1995. The minimum investment threshold is $20,000 and investors will have the ability to increase in $5,000 increments. The company earnings and cash flow are currently strong enough to confidently pay the 8% return per year to investors.
Most recently, HSF has primarily financed hotel developments across the U.S., closing 10 hotel construction loans and one multifamily construction loan in 2017. The company expects to see more diversity in asset type over the course of 2018, as traditional capital sources continue to shrink their construction lending practices.
